I am using Developer 7 sp4 and have a Basic MSI project.

A little background...
We released version 1.0 of a product, and then released a patch for it, upgrading it to 1.1.

Current Problem...
I created a minor upgrade, based off the 1.0 project. The minor upgrade works great for the 1.0 release. It upgrades everything properly just as expected.

However, the minor upgrade does not work on the 1.1 (patched) version. I did not change the product ID or upgrade ID in the patched project...so when I try to run the minor upgrade on the 1.1 release, it recognizes the minor upgrade which is a good thing, but shortly after craps out (the wizard was interrupted...)

I was checking the log file - and it seems that it is crapping out right after my first custom action. So as a test, I took it out. The next time through it crapped out on my next custom action. It seems that it is crapping out on any of my custom actions.

Any ideas? If more details or info is needed, let me know, i'll be happy to post whatever is needed. Thanks
